Keto Lemon Butter Chicken Thighs
Lemon butter chicken is a delicious dinner dish that you can prepare once a week. It’s creamy, tasty and your family will definitely love it, even if they don’t follow keto.
We use chicken thighs with skin and bone for this recipe. You can use boneless and skinless chicken thighs if you want to. You might also replace this with chicken breast.
First, we will season the meat with the basic seasoning then pan-sear the thighs skin side down approximately 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn brown.
The next step is to add heavy cream, chicken broth, lemon juice, and thyme. Bring it to a boil then simmer and add spinach.
Finally, cover Parmesan cheese on top and bake until it’s cooked. It’s going to smell amazing when you take it out of the oven.
You can serve this with fresh salad and some extra lemon juice.
